The P3P spec working group decided to make the following
change to section 2.3.2.5:

Replace "A policy reference file can only cover URIs on the same host 
as the reference file. Therefore the INCLUDE and EXCLUDE elements 
MUST specify only local URI prefixes; they MUST NOT refer to URIs on 
other hosts." with "A policyref can be applied only to URIs on the DNS 
host that reference it. The INCLUDE and EXCLUDE elements MUST 
specify URI patterns relative to the root of the DNS host to which they 
are applied.

This change does not impact sites that use the well-known location
mechanism, but allows sites using headers or link tags greater
flexibility.
